Mill Film and TV has completed all VFX work for the magical adaptation of Skellig which premieres on Sky1 and Sky1 HD this Easter. Produced by Feel Films, Skellig features an all-star cast including Tim Roth, John Simm and Kelly MacDonald.
Based on the award-winning children's novel by David Almond,
Skellig tells the enchanting story of Michael a young boy whose
life is forever changed when he discovers a strange bird-like
creature called Skellig living in his family's garden shed.
Will Cohen, Group Director of Mill Film and TV, said: "Skellig
provided us with a fantastic opportunity to work as the sole vendor
for picture post and visual effects on the movie. Our close working
relationship with director Annabel Jankel and Feel Films enabled us
to become part of the production process - from on-set supervision
through to the creation of a wide range of seamless effects both in
3D and 2D.
He added, "The final magical touch to the overall look of the film
was accomplished by our digital intermediate team who graded for
both a theatrical and digital release."
International cinematic distribution for Skellig is being handled
by Velvet Octopus.
